Indiana coach Kevin Wilson had a chance to watch a lot of film during his team's off week. It's clear he liked what he saw from Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg, the true freshman that the Hoosiers will face on Saturday in the Big Ten opener for both teams.
"From afar when I watch, you just look at body language, and he's a very mature kid that doesn't appear to get rattled," Wilson said Monday at his weekly news conference in Bloomington, Ind., site of Saturday's contest.
"He's not sitting there reading at the third grade level of quarterback play. He's at a very high level for a young guy. And I think with the open week, they'll probably advance and even put more on his plate. . . . He's a quality, good young player, very good."
